The famous Vicente Padilla contract quote

There's been some discussion about Vicente Padilla's purported claim that he's going to pitch for whatever team pays him the most money, and what the source for that is...

I believe I've seen it in one or two other places, as well, but it was referenced in a Gerry Fraley column a month ago:

Visions of a big payday could be giving Padilla the motivation that he has often lacked.

Padilla can become a free agent after this season. When a club employee raised the subject of what next season might hold for him, Padilla said he would be with the club that pays him the most.
